Shake is a defragmenter that runs in userspace

Shake is a defragmenter that runs in userspace, without the need of patching
the kernel and while the system is used (for now, on GNU/Linux only).

There is nothing magic in that : it just works by rewriting fragmented files.
But it has some heuristics that could make it more efficient than other tools,
including defrag and, maybe, xfs_fsr.

As an example, it allows you to write find -iname '*.mp3' | sort | shake
to defrag all mp3 in a directory, puting together on the disk those close
in lexical order.
